The funding for the San Clemente Trolley came from a $1.2 million grant from the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) which the city applied for. The grant covers most of the cost to operate the trolley, and the City pays for the rest. The Friends of the San Clemente Beaches, Parks & Recreation Foundation provided a donation of $10,000 to help start the trolley service.
